Tenley Campus is configured to define a prominent identity for American University Washington College of Law while honoring the legacy of the site, designated as a National Register Historic District.

For its 1,700 students, 430 faculty, and staff, the new and renovated buildings form a connected complex of teaching spaces, conference facilities, legal clinic resources, teaching courtrooms, law library, alumni center, faculty and staff offices, and multiple student study/meeting spaces. Outdoor spaces include a central quadrangle and an accessible front lawn that provide opportunities for interaction.

Whiting-Turner is the Construction Manager and SmithGroupJJR is the architecture/engineering design firm.
